At Scarcliffe Primary School we really value our pupil's views. One way in which we gather their views and ideas is by having a school council. The president and vice president were voted for by the pupils a democratic voting system. They then advertised the roles that were available in school and interviews took place to get the right people for each role.
Meet our School Councillors:
In order to choose our School Council President and Vice President, we held and election in school. All candidates had a week to put a campaign together and delivered speeches to the rest of the children in a special assembly.
After counting the votes we found out that Darcey and Theodore were chosen for the roles.
Following the vote, it was time to advertise for the roles we needed filling.
Darcey and Theodore then interviewed the candidates based on their application forms and appointed the new school council.
